CALL FOR PAPERS: National Conference on "Emerging Issues in Finance and Banking"

A robust financial system is a backbone of an Economy. Efficient financial system can mobilize and channelize economic growth through efficient capital allocation, increase in capital accumulation, reduction in borrowing and transaction costs etc. India being a developing economy encounters unique challenges and for solving those issues we need to continuously explore new frontiers for research. Some of the emerging areas are the implementation of Ind-AS, regulators’ continuous effort in enforcing reforms in the fields of governance, IPO pricing, Insider trading, takeover codes, efforts by financial institutions to identify and provide for stressed assets, etc. As a result of these reforms, the focus of academic research concerning financial markets has to be continuously evolving.
